Inauguration of Water Facility in Tuhilo Kraik

On February 23rd, 2019, the community of Tuhilo Kraik celebrated the inauguration of the newly established water facility, which was administered by the Jesuit Social Service (JSS) in close collaboration with the local residents. This is a remarkable achievement and will be highly beneficial for this community in helping them access clean water without having to walk distances and using plastic containers to fetch water.

Before the establishment of the water facility, many households in the community of Tuhilo Kraik had to spend many hours just to fetch water for their daily needs. That was because they had to walk through rugged terrains and carry their plastic containers or bamboo containers to get the water from the fountain. Some of them used bamboo as pipes to canalize water to the nearest distance to their house, but this method was not effective and did not last very long. The bamboos were not steady to hold the water flow and many times the had to redo everything.

This community project is made possible through the generous support of Jesuit Mission Australia. Our deepest gratitude to the many donors and friends who supported the Jesuit Mission campaign to support this project.

Lent – Almsgiving, Prayer, and Fasting

IMG-2088(1)

“ Jesus said to his disciples: “Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father. When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets win the praise of others. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward”. The reading today introduces the three chief acts of Jewish piety – almsgiving, prayer, and fasting. In each act the logical structure is the same :

1. A warning not to do the act to be praised by human beings,

2. Instruction on how to perform the act of piety secretly, and

3. The assurance that the Father who sees in secret will reward openly.

Pope Francis : “No act of virtue can be great if it is not followed by an advantage to others.” The picture above suggests fasting that can benefit our planet. Matthew 6:1-6
